New York City considering vaccination lottery incentive similar to Ohio's

Insider BuzzInsider Buzz: New York City considering vaccination lottery incentive similar to Ohio'sRating:

By Kate Northrop

A week after Ohio announced their "Vax-a-Million" lottery, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said that his administration is considering a similar idea to motivate residents to get vaccinated against COVID-19.

On Wednesday at a City Hall press briefing, de Blasio responded to a reporter who inquired about New York holding a separate lottery to incentivize unvaccinated residents to get a dose.

"We are talking about whether that kind of approach would add something," de Blasio answered. "Every day, we're seeing continued progress on vaccination. I think the number one reason that's happening is because we've made it ever-more convenient — more local, walk-in, mobile vaccination centers — I think all of this is just making it real easy for people."

The New York City Mayor's Office has already offered various incentives for people who received their vaccination, such as a free two-week Citi Bike membership, free fries at Shake Shack, and a free weekly MetroCard.

While a lottery for a cash prize is currently just a rumor, de Blasio has already announced a lottery-type incentive for basketball fans — a chance to win free tickets to a home Brooklyn Nets game by getting vaccinated at the Barclay's Center vaccination site.

"Now, here's the deal," de Blasio explained while sporting a jersey. "Go there, get vaccinated, enter a lottery for playoff tickets... The Nets are gonna be in the playoffs for a long time all the way until the end, so you're going to have multiple chances to win playoff tickets when you get vaccinated at that site."

While the current incentives offered by the administration might be appealing to some people, de Blasio said that his office is going to continue looking for more ways to interest the public.

"I talk to people all the time who say, 'Oh yeah, I'm just finally getting around to it,' [or] 'Oh yeah, there's someplace now near me I'm gonna go,'" he said. "I think the incentives are also helping and generating a lot of interest and focus."

New Yorkers looking for a money incentive will have to wait and see what the de Blasio administration decides.

"We're looking at models around the country, and a lottery-type idea is real interesting," de Blasio concluded. "We'll be assessing that, and we'll have more to say on that soon."

Sounds to me that some states ordered too much vaccine and the demand dropped like a rock.

    Sounds to me that some states ordered too much vaccine and the demand dropped like a rock.

    IIRC, the Federal government allocated vaccine based on population data. States were then able to distribute it as they wanted. They didn't get to "order" doses (There were stories of some states asking for more doses because they had greater demand.)

     

    The people who "wanted" to be vaccinated are predominantly vaccinated... 

     

    It is the "holdouts" that these lotteries are aimed at.

     

    people who, for a variety of reasons, have so far not taken up the opportunity to be vaccinated.

     

    If the "holdouts" remain as too great a proportion of the population, then the USA will never reach "herd immunity".. COVID-19 will remain in the population ready to strike at anytime when there was a sufficient pool of vulnerable people (lack suitable antibodies...)

      It's an interesting, expensive, unit of data from Covid-19 virus to measure.  I wonder that if the %dead of residents within the USA, within 12 months, had been higher than the .15% actual dead ... would more residents have received the free full vaccine by now. I believe that most folks understand that the free full vaccine has been available, for the past month, at most grocery store pharmacies, without a wait.

      Perhaps if 1% of USA residents had died.  Or maybe 10% had died.

        No, the vaccine has NOT  been available at most grocery store pharmacies without a wait, that is a myth. It depends on what states and areas you live in. Hard for you to believe but there are STILL states where one has to make an appointment online and appointments are STILL all booked up

          Well if you get vaccined just for the purpose of getting chances to enter a sweepstakes for the playoff tickets and have not won anything, you end up being stuck with something that is so dangerous and can change your dna for the rest of your life , and if somthing should happen to you after you get vaccinated and have not won anything and you cant sue your doctor, hospital, and manufacturers because they are excused from any liability whatsoever and your insurance policy refuses to cover your injury plus your funeral expenses which you have been making monthly payments for years and they can be cancelled and you work hard for nothing! 

          I will never compromise my life or dna for the vaccination for the sake of the playoff game tickets! 

           

          An eternity in either heaven or hell is real. 

          Be careful when making.a decision is taken

          Say no to vaccine ! 

          Get as many opinions as possible.

          Get educated about its ingredients.

          Watch videos about how it is made of ( you will not like it) 

          Ask an insurance company if they cover yoir injury.

          Ask your government if you or your family can sue a doctor if you get injured or killed by an injection ( you will be surprised to find out an answer) 

           

          George Soros and billionaires' wish of depopulating us for years are finally becoming a reality.

           

          Wake up people!

                  Not going to stoop down and watch some video.

                   

                  BTW it is RNA, not DNA, so get your facts straight.

                   

                  mRNA will shortly be recruited to fight many diseases, particularly cancer.    It is a MESSENGER for RNA which allows the immune system to recognize and destroy said disease. 

                   

                  On a different subject I found a very interesting article that I shared with one of our patient's Mom.  Her daughter died from Neuroblastoma in our PICU.   Point of article is the deception for pediatric cancer cures that is widely touted.  They are referring to five year cancer survival and many, many do not survive past that threshold.   The Mom thanked me profusely after she read it...she didn't know either.

                  Luckyguesser if you addressed drugs that have the suffix mab then you'd have valid points.    Some end in nib as well.  That is the scary stuff APPROVED by the FDA...listen to ads when they discuss potential side effects.  These drugs are not specifically tailored to an individual's genetic make up.  mRNA drugs will be.

                    I just read that over 42,000 people died last year from auto accidents last year, and no one seems too concerned about that. But stuff like covid and vaccines unfortunately turn into politics and conspiracy nonsense. How did this country get to this point? Actually I remember sometime in the 1980's my wife and I had friends in Ohio, and my wife was talking to her friend about some common vaccine for kids, and her friend said "nope, not my babies, not going to experiment on my babies". I just looked at her like she was nuts. 

                    Bluedog, when my wife got leukemia we learned genetics can play a huge part in surviving or not. Her oncologist told her she had "complex genetics", meaning chromosone 17p deletion and tp53 mutation made it resistant to treatment.

                      rcbbuckeye...I'm so saddened to read about your beloved Wife.  My point of bringing up the subject is like you said about Genetics, what works for one person may not work on the next.  Same with heavy drinkers/smokers, some sail through years of body abuse and nothing happens.  Then there's the lung cancer some folks get and never smoked a day in their lives---predisposed to Genetics.

                          Geez, it's not nice calling someone a liar. You need to calm down. 

                          Problem with the internet is you can find just about anything that fits your belief if you look hard enough. The trick is to sift out the nonsense, which you seem to haven't learned to do.

                            I wish Todd made this much easier for me to post whatever I want but anyway , you are lying, bleudog ! There are a plenty of information about vaccines that are dangerous and "not approved by FDA !" It is an experiment trial being performed on the human beings to just see if it works ! 

                            I have a freedom to share what I want people to listen to if they want to know, and you are entitled to do whatever you want people to listen to about your what is on the toilet paper anyway.

                            Henry Kissinger in a speech to the world health organization council on Eugenics on Feb 25, 2009...

                            " Once the herd accepts a mandatory forcible vaccination,  the game is over ! 

                            They will accept anything --- forcible blood or organ donation --- for the "greater" good .

                            We can genetically modify children and sterilize them --- for the " greater good ".

                            Control sheep minds and you control the herd . Vaccine makers stand to make billions , and 

                            many of you in this room today are investors. It is a big win-win ! 

                            We thin out the herd and the herd pays us for providing an extermination services. 

                            Now ,what is for a lunch , huh? " 

                            That is what he (former billionaire official) said  so you are Henry Kissinger 's  behind licker. 

                             I have more to share with the whole world about the great reset, new world order agenda, and cashless social and etc on here, but I can't so you have to find it out through social media such as Google, facebook, and other site. 

                            Anyway hope your face is not blue yet after reading this, bleudog ! 

                            Thanks.

                            You may have much to share, but does anyone care.. hmm, poetry!
